Naturopathic doctors are medically trained health professional that utilize natural therapies to treat both acute and chronic conditions. A detailed patient history is taken, pertinent physical exams are performed, and necessary laboratory testing is used to help determine the root cause of an illness, and diagnose health conditions. A holistic approach is used to treat the cause of disease rather than suppressing symptoms.
Disease presents differently in each person, therefore, consideration of mental, physical, emotional, environmental, and social influences on the disease are vital in treating each individual. All contributing factors to the disease are considered in creating a customized treatment plan for each patient.
Naturopathic doctors are trained in a wide variety of therapies. This vast selection allows each patient to be treated individually and can combine several therapies to create customized, result-oriented treatments. Treatments may include, but are not limited to:
· Botanical medicine
· Nutrition and supplementation
· Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
· Physical medicine
· Lifestyle counselling
